    Dissimilar gas tungsten arc weld-brazing of Al/steel using Al-Si filler metal: microstructure and strengthening mechanisms

    , Article Journal of Alloys and Compounds ; Volume 749 , 15 June , 2018 , Pages 121-127 ; 09258388 (ISSN) Pouranvari, M ; Abbasi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier Ltd  2018
    In this paper gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) was applied to dissimilar lap joining of Al6061 and Zn-coated galvanized low carbon steels using Al-5 wt% Si filler metal. The joining mechanism was based on a hybrid brazing/welding mechanism. Three factors contributed to the joint strength including (i) low heat input rate of GTAW process which reduce the intermetallic compound layer growth during joining, (ii) the special role of Si in the filler metal which was able to change the nature of reaction layer from predominantly η-Al5Fe2 phase to predominately less brittle Al-Fe-Si phase and (iii) the flux-like action of Zn-coating which ensures complete wetting of steel surface by Al melt. It was...

    , Article Journal of Alloys and Compounds ; Volume 576 , 2013 , Pages 317-323 ; 09258388 (ISSN) Sadeghi, E ; Karimzadeh, F ; Abbasi, M. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the present study the behavior of Ti-Al-C ternary system is investigated during mechanical alloying. The mixture of Ti, Al and C powders was used with initial stoichiometric composition of Ti3AlC2. X-ray diffraction (XRD) was used to characterize the milled powders and a thermodynamic analysis of the process was then carried out using Miedema model. This thermodynamic analysis showed that for all binary Ti-C, Al-C, Ti-Al systems and ternary Ti-Al-C systems, among all compositions, the thermodynamic driving force for intermetallic phase formation is much greater when compared with the formation of solid solutions or amorphous phases. Finally the reactions that are feasible to occur during...

    A semi-active controller-based neural network for a suspension system with magnetorheological (MR) dampers is presented and evaluated. An inverse neural network model (NIMR) is constructed to replicate the inverse dynamics of the MR damper. The typical control strategies are linear quadratic regulator (LQR) and linear quadratic gaussian (LQG) controllers with a clipped optimal control algorithm, while inherent time-delay and non-linear properties of MR damper lie in these strategies. LQR part of LQG controller is also designed to produce the optimal control force. The LQG controller and the NIMR models are linked to control the system. The effectiveness of the NIMR is illustrated and...

    , Article Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology ; Volume 26, Issue 2 , February , 2012 , Pages 345-352 ; 1738494X (ISSN) Abbasi, M ; Shafaat, M. A ; Ketabchi, M ; Haghshenas, D. F ; Abbasi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Forming limit diagrams (FLDs) are extensively used in industries, particularly the auto industry. The establishment of these diagrams using a predictive approach can lead to reduction in both cost and time. In the present work, Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman (GTN), a porosity-based model, was used to predict the FLD of an interstitial-free steel via finite element simulation. Optimum values of the GTN model were obtained by applying a response surface methodology (RSM) based on central composite design. Results show that RSM is a good method for an appropriate determination of the GTN model parameters, such as initial void volume fraction, effective void volume fraction, critical void volume...

The solution algorithm is guaranteed to terminate in finite time with a computational cost that has a reasonable upper bound compared to the minimal cost for computing the optimal solution. In this work all actual working area condition for instance noises and disturbances are considered. Eventually, LQG and Lead Compensator have...

    Effective diffusion coefficient is an important parameter which needs to be determined in different fields of study, such as cathode catalyst layers of PEM fuel. For this purpose, a Loschmidt diffusion cell can be used. When a porous medium is placed in Loschmidt apparatus, the effective gas diffusion coefficient (EGDC) of this section must be correlated by diffusion coefficient in absence of a porous medium. In the previous researches studying the Loschmidt diffusion cell, a simplifying infinite-length assumption was used in the analytical solution. Therefore, the solution is only applicable for a short time range, and this can result in high error. In order to overcome this challenge, the...

    This paper considers multi-biasing conditions for graphene patterns in multi-layer structures. The term “Multi Bias” is introduced as a different bias for parts of a single graphene layer in shape of disks. This technique is developed to control device behavior versus THz radiation. Exploiting the multi-bias configuration, a unique structure acts as both narrowband absorber and wideband reflector. This feature can pave the way to realize complex THz sensors, detectors, and optical systems. Also, the proposed structure is modeled using circuit modeling by considering the multi bias effects. Accuracy of the circuit model is validated via the finite element method which exhibits less than 1%...

    An exact analytical solution for one-dimensional fluid flow through rock matrix block is presented. The nonlinearity induced from flow functions makes the governing equations describing this mechanism difficult to be analytically solved. In this paper, an analytical solution to the infiltration problems considering non-linear relative permeability functions is presented for finite depth, despite its profound and fundamental importance. Elimination of the nonlinear terms in the equation, as a complex and tedious task, is done by applying several successive mathematical manipulations including: Hopf-Cole transformation to obtain a diffusive type PDE; an exponential type transformation to get a...
